  • New Exhibit

    We have closed the doors for the month of June and are working on the new exhibit.    All Aboard: Now and Then.  It will be all about trains.  We are excited about how this is developing and are anxious to see it come to life.  We need a few artistic types to help with two wall murals.  If you can help please call Jeanne at 314-941-2097   I hope you have seen our "Donate" button.  Funds are always lacking so if you can help please do.  Thanks in advance.

  • Kids & Art

    Lots of kids on Monday.  More coming Friday.  They really enjoyed McKenzie Johnston showing them the details in a Randal Spangler picture. 

    His works are very detailed and the children loved pointing out the neat things that caught their eye.

Welcome to the Children's Illustrated Art Museum

We are finally there.  Ready to open on Saturday Aug 2!  The  train exhibit looks great with a good mix of info for adults and hands on for kids.  Many thanks to the folks at Home Depot.  Four local area stores built the cool  wooden train seen below.  Large enough for kids to climb on and also a great place for taking pictures.
